Willow Smith Enters The World Of Musicals!

Willow Smith
There is just no stopping the Smith kids! At the mere age of 11, Willow Smith has already released two hit singles and served as the opening act for Justin Bieber's sold out "My World" tour, - but it hasn't been enough to satisfy her thirst for success!

She recently signed up to star in the new movie remake of the classical musical Annie! The musical tells the story about an 11-year-old girl who escapes her orphanage to go look for her parents, so obviously Willow is just the right age for the role.

Oscar winning screenwriter Emma Thompson has been hired to rewrite the original Annie script for the big screen, Willow's record producer/mentor Jay-Z is set to do the music and of course her parents Will & Jada Pinkett Smith will be producing!

Glee creator Ryan Murphy was originally meant to write the script, but when his new TV project "American Horror" got picked up he didn't feel life he would have the time to finish the script before it's deadline in November and handed over the project to Emma.

This sounds like a crazy-fun project to us and we're really excited to see what they come up with!
